Evolving existing cities towards sustainability: assessing seismic risk

PEAK Briefing

This briefing explores new methods of seismic risk assessment, which can inform better disaster risk planning. 

Seismic risk assessment is normally a complex and expensive process, involving physical examination of individual buildings. New methods using open access images and artificial intelligence models can help planners undertake more frequent assessments, put in place more effective mitigation and management strategies, and better protect citizens and their homes.
